Dentures Offer Many Benefits Cosmetic and Restorative

Improved Appearance

Dentures can turn a compromised smile into a dazzling smile. They also fill out your face, avoiding an aged, shriveled look.

Improved Diet

Dentures can allow you to bite and chew healthy foods like crunchy fruits, veggies, and nuts without pain or worry.

Improved Speech

Dentures can help you to pronounce words more clearly.

Improved Oral Health

Missing teeth can cause your jawbone to shrink and weaken. Dental implants that support dentures encourage healthy jawbone growth.

Improved Self-Esteem

A complete, healthy smile thanks to dentures can boost your self-confidence in social and professional situations.

Office staff is just the best, could not do enough for us. Sammy, my new dental hygienist is amazing! Got me through X-Ray’s that are always an issue (gagging). And did an awesome job cleaning my teeth, even while fighting my closing mouth! Sammy is the best! Thanks

Traditional Dentures

/

This removable oral appliance consists of an acrylic base that matches the color of your gums. Customized artificial teeth are attached to the base. There are two kinds of traditional dentures: full and partial.

Full Dentures

A full denture can completely restore lost function for patients missing all of the teeth in the upper, lower, or both jaws. In the upper jaw, the base of the denture covers the roof of your mouth and gums. In the lower jaw, full dentures are shaped like horseshoes to leave room for your tongue. These kinds of dentures are usually held in place with a strong dental adhesive.

Implant Dentistry Testimonial

Frances was suffering from poorly fitting traditional dentures. After receiving implant-supported dentures at Planes Dental Arts, she feels much more comfortable. She recommends that anyone interested in dental implants should contact Dr. Alex Planes.

Partial Dentures

If you are missing multiple teeth, a partial denture can fill the gaps in your smile. Many patients choose partial dentures as a removable alternative to traditional bridges. In addition, partials can replace missing teeth even when they are not consecutive. A partial denture has metal or acrylic hooks that wrap around an adjacent tooth for additional support.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Dental implant placement requires surgery, so this highly effective procedure may not work for all patients. Contact us to schedule a complimentary implant consultation in Vero Beach, Tradition, or Port St. Lucie to learn more about the benefits of implant-supported dentures:

  • Implant-supported dentures offer superior stability over traditional ones. They will not slip or fall out.
  • They are attached directly to titanium implants our dentist surgically places in your jaw, so hooks and messy adhesives aren't needed.
  • Dr. Planes can attach full and partial dentures to dental implants so you can enjoy increased stability even if you're not missing all your teeth.
  • Dental implants protect the jawbone against atrophy or shrinkage, which is closely associated with tooth loss.
  • Implants are a worthwhile investment as the titanium posts can last a lifetime.
  • Regular brushing and flossing can keep your implant-supported dentures clean and functioning properly for 20 years or more — no more soaking.
